ROPLA, July 24: Lockdown order in Rolpa district headquarters Liwang has been lifted after a week starting 1 PM on Friday.

The headquarters was sealed off in a bid to contain the spread of novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) following the confirmation of 13 cases of the disease in Rolpa Municipality-4, Gurung Gaun and Dhawang of Ward 10.  Public service delivery at all the government offices and banking institutions had come to a grinding halt following the order.

According to the Chief District Officer Narendra Kumar Rana, the lockdown order was lifted as all those who had come  in contact with the COVID-19 infected patients tested negative for this disease. He added that 20 people who were found during contact tracing tested negative for COVID-19.

A meeting of the District Disaster Management Committee held earlier today took the decision to lift the lockdown.
